Olney-based Sandy Spring Bank warned Wednesday that counterfeit cashier's checks bearing the institution's name and routing number are in circulation. The company has notified the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., a government corporation that guarantees bank deposits, of the counterfeit checks. The checks use the bank's routing number – 055001096 – and display an inaccurate security feature. According to Sandy Spring, the fake checks display a security feature statement embedded in a darkened top border and along the bottom border, between two padlock icons.

As an unprecedented wave of development gets under way in Towson, a close examination is necessary of the transportation infrastructure that must be in place to accommodate the boom in residents and visitors. The formation of a committee by 5th District Councilman David Marks to study a bus circulator is an important step in that direction. The clock is ticking. The window of opportunity is closing for putting buses to work before the congestion hits. The cluster of bars, restaurants, movie screens and a nightclub in the center of Towson will constitute one of Baltimore County's major entertainment hubs, and this surge in density will inevitably make parking a deterrent for some and ultimately a problem that must be solved.

In the worst cases, persistent wounds that aren't treated can infect the bone and even lead to amputation. Dr. Kapil Gopal, vascular surgeon and assistant professor of surgery at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and medical director of the Maryland Wound Healing Center at the University of Maryland Medical Center's Midtown Campus, talks about treatment options for severe wounds.

Downtown Towson is on the cusp of a building boom that will transform this suburban county seat into one of the most dynamic, cosmopolitan communities in Maryland. All the elements are in place for this transformation. Towson has two institutions of higher education, Towson University and Goucher College, that not only provide world-class learning but also a work force that stabilizes the commercial core. Residential developments like Towson Green will make sure the downtown area does not become a ghost town after sunset and on the weekends.

Tribune Co. further reduced circulation figures at two of its newspapers yesterday and said it expects to increase compensation payments to advertisers by as much as $60 million. The media company said its third-quarter earnings would be cut by $45 million to $60 million as a result of circulation inaccuracies first disclosed in June at Newsday of Long Island, N.Y., and the New York edition of Hoy, a Spanish-language daily. The new outlay follows a $35 million charge that the company took against second-quarter earnings to settle an initial round of advertiser grievances.

What a thrill to watch the Orioles play these two divisional series games, each with late endings due to rain delays, and to still find coverage and photos in The Sun at 7 a.m. next morning, delivered to our front door! Having the pictures of action, players and fans, as well as reporters' perspectives to describe all that went on is priceless. I've bought extra newspapers and mailed them to relatives who are Orioles fans in Texas, Virginia and Florida. What collectors items! And I've bought them for my 5-year-old grandchildren, who devour the photographs, posters and Orioles advertisements and hang them in their rooms.
